This foot massager is eye-candy

johnson_foot_massager_1

Without a sense of scale, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell the Nest foot massager apart from a chair. That’s pretty much a positive for the Nest, since its aesthetic complements the inside of a salon or a spa, with its curves and colors.

Sitting atop the Nest is its foldable cover that is sure to remind you of Apple’s iPad cases and the way they fold open and closed. Its presence helps bring a contemporary/modern touch to the massager, while the splash of colors aim to excite while the machine itself was designed to relax. Available in a variety of fresh colors, the Nest can be used with or even without the cover (which magnetically snapps on and off). It comes with the ability to tilt back, and cleverly conceals the control panel in a hatch at the back of the device, away from view while still remaining accessible when needed.

A flute with Gesture-Control!

flux_flute_1

Any musician worth their salt will tell you that while electronic instruments offer a larger degree of control, they feel impersonal. A lot gets lost in converting electrical signals into audio, and this lack of expressiveness is what makes them sound robotic.

Flux, however, brings gesture control to the electronic instrument, allowing musicians to add their own personal touches and imperfections that help make the music sound natural. Made out of wood to give the instrument a natural feel, the Flux comes with buttons and a capacitive touch surface that records everything from the position of your fingers, to the angle, to even gestures, making sure the electronic audio signal captures as many details as possible. Designed to embody the aesthetic of high-end music equipment, the Flux lets you be as expressive as you would with an acoustic instrument while retaining full electronic control!

The FLUX is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2017.

When human and nature design together

the_whim_1

Imagine if you could take a part of your travel experiences and preserve them in time in your house… The Whim does just that. Taking inspiration from the undulating rock formations seen at the Wave in Arizona, Whim’s form oscillates between geometric and organic, striking a balance between man-made design and nature’s design.

The Whim’s design makes for a great play of light and shadows, taking cues from how picturesque Arizona’s rock formations look in the daytime. The semi-circular unit houses an LED strip within, which shines on the organic forms at the opposite end of the circle, creating a dramatic, neo-minimalist halo of order and chaos, light and shade. The forms make for a great sculptural lighting unit and can be either wall-mounted, hung from above, or used as a table/floor lamp. Either which way, for people who’ve explored and loved Arizona’s geological wonders, the Whim is a beautiful way to preserve those memories in a format that’s utilitarian, aesthetic, and most importantly, non-traditional!
